Live Map is back! Some of you may not remember live map, some of you may love that it is back, and others will remember being hunted down because people could find you with the live map. I know some people don't enjoy the live map and what it offers, but I think it is a great part of the server and it is needed to bring enjoyment back into the server for some players.
If you are one of the players who hates live map and the fact that people can see where you live you need to remember a few things:
Minecraft is about survival. Not just survival from mobs, falls, fire, and lava, but also survival from other players. Having the possibilty that you could be hunted down and killed should remind you that you need to adapt and survive. Don't just rage and complain.
World Guards are essential if you want to 100% protect yourself from being hunted down. They are not that expensive for small zones and I encourage everyone to purchase at least a 25x25 zone that they can...
The server will be offline from 1:30 PM CST until approximately 3:30 PM CST for some needed maintenance. During this time you will not be able to join the server, but it may still appear online. There are several things that need to be done during this time and that includes a full server backup, uploading backups to a secondary location, and software upgrades on the system software. Since there hasn't been many people online during this time period recently I don't think it will affect too many people.
Tomorrow is the start of a new month and that means the votes will be reset. Remember to keep voting for the server to help get our server name out there and get new players to join our community.
MutinyCraft has recently added a new voting plugin that allows players more options for rewards. All of the information on this plugin can be found on the Wiki here. The most notable feature of this plugin is that you no longer need to be online for your vote to give you rewards. As soon as you vote (online or offline) you will have points added to your account in game which you can redeem for things like diamonds, ender pearls, beacons, and much more. For the complete list of rewards see the Wiki.
Most Votes Reward!
Along with the new plugin we will also be giving away some rewards for the top voters in the month of August....
Minecraft (not MutinyCraft) will be updating to 1.6 on July 1st and with this update comes a bunch of additions to the game-play. The most notable new additions are horses and stained clay blocks. With this update there is also an all new minecraft launcher that everyone will be required to get. The good news about this launcher is that you can upgrade and downgrade freely with the click of a button. That means you can play 1.6 and then downgrade back to 1.5.2 or the other way around.
MutinyCraft will not be updating to 1.6 until some of the plugins we use are updated to work with the new version. The wait could be anywhere from a few days to more than a week. As soon as all of the plugins are updated and everything is stable we will update. Until then you can freely switch back and forth between 1.5.2 and 1.6 so you wont miss out on any game time on MutinyCraft.
